Team Hoyt – a dream team

Team Hoyt is a father (Dick Hoyt, born June 1, 1940) and son (Rick Hoyt, born January 10, 1962) team from Holland, Massachusetts, who have competed together in various athletic endeavors, including marathons and triathlons. Rick has cerebral palsy and during competition Dick pulls Rick in a special boat as they swim, carries him in a special seat in the front of a bicycle, and pushes him in a special wheelchair as they run. Team Hoyt was inducted to the Ironman Hall of Fame in 2008. (From Wikipedia)

“Rick is my motivator; he inspires me. To me he is the one out there competing and I am just loaning him my arms and my legs so that he can compete “. Dick Hoyt, Rick’s father.
